Drogheda Independent - - FRONT PAGE -

ROCHE Emmets proved too strong for Naomh Mairtin B as they came through this Kevin Mullen Shield quar­ter-fi­nal with a com­pre­hen­sive vic­tory.

The game in Roche on Sun­day af­ter­noon was over as a contest long be­fore the half time whis­tle had sounded with the hosts find­ing the net on four oc­ca­sions in the open­ing pe­riod on their way to a 4-13 to 0-3 lead.

The Mairtins were al­ways go­ing to strug­gle in this match as Roche are a good out­fit and have only hav­ing 16 play­ers to choose from with the se­niors play­ing at the same time and with other play­ers un­avail­able.

Roche dom­i­nated the game from start to fin­ish, but be fair to the Mairtins they plugged away for the whole game and had some fine per­for­mances from last year’s mi­nors Joe McGrane and James Martin in par­tic­u­lar.
